A few questions
    #363215 - 07/29/01 11:07 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Ok, so my las post was asking about using a humidifier in my growing chamber. It seems most of the vets at this are telling me not to bother right now. I've been reading this message board picking up a few tips here and there but I still have a few questions. I was looking around the picture thread and i saw a lot of pictures of shrooms growing out of a disposable baking tin thingies. They seem to be set in a terrarium on some white stuff. What is this tech? Where can i find information about it? And does it require a lot of maintance?Second, What is perlite? I know it's volcanic ash but how does it create humidity? Thanks in advace for your responses :)

they are tin loaf pans, you use them to case in.

>They seem to be set in a terrarium on some white stuff. What is this tech?

that white stuff is perlite. i think it is the perlite tek?

>Where can i find information about it? And does it require a lot of maintance?

you can find information about it everywhere, and if you have some basic equipment it can be maintanence free.

>Second, What is perlite? I know it's volcanic ash but how does it create humidity? Thanks in advace for your responses :)

perlite is something you can use to create humidity. i could never get it to work the way i wanted it, so i cant help you there.



i may, fucking drop something natural somewhere and it might grow into another piece of shit like you. i dont recognize any of you fucking people, youre not real, you came out of comic books.

Those are casings in those tins. You can find out how to make a casing in the grow/find section of the shroomery. That white stuff is perlite.

Perlite is very porous (filled with tiny holes). This allows the perlite to hold alot of water. When you use perlite for humidity it acts as a wick. It pulls the water from the bottom up to the surface of the perlite and then the water evaporates into the air (Transpiration). This creates a more natural humidity consisting of water vapor, as apposed to the water droplets put into the air by a humidifier.

I don't care about jack shit, I just wanna pick my nose!!!
